A homeless transgender woman, who strangled to death a man with whom she had a decade-long friendship after being invited to live in his Portland, Ore., apartment, was sentenced Thursday to 18 years in prison.
Paris McConville, 35, pleaded guilty to one count each of first-degree manslaughter and second-degree assault in the August 2017 death of Ryan Thompson, 35, FOX12 Oregon reported.
In the end, he lost his life because he trusted the wrong person," Thompsons sister, Cecily Thompson-Thiel, said in court.
McConville walked into a local police station 17 hours after killing her friend and confessed, the Oregonian reported. Police discovered she had moved his body to a bathtub and bound his hands with packing tape.
Thompsons official cause of death was ruled as strangulation, but he also had a stab wound to an arm and blunt force trauma to the back of his head, police said.
Investigators said the friends had an argument that turned physical, though a clear motive was never discovered, FOX12 reported.
McConville had been homeless and living off food stamps preceding the invitation to stay at Thompsons apartment, the Oregonian reported. Authorities believe McConville suffers from mental illness.
McConville, who apologized in court, was originally charged with murder and faced life in prison, but the charge was downgraded because she surrendered and showed remorse, her defense attorney, Jason Steen, told the paper.
Thompsons family addressed the court Thursday. They described their loved one as kind, sensitive, and exceedingly intelligent with a caring heart, FOX12 reported.
"He was a good big brother, said Thompson-Thiel. He and I will never have the chance to grow old together."

They are mentally ill. Never trust them.
dude needs to wax his stache
Hate crime against a man?
Authorities believe McConville suffers from mental illness.
Really? Did it take a team of them to figure that out?
By the way, Fox New, it’s not a “she” it’s a HE.
An obvious mental case.
Considering the weirdo trend in journalists and the linguistic activism of the leftist maniacs in academia, that’s really a transsexual man, right?
Well, that's what we've been trying to tell everybody about these kind of people.
Manslaughter for strangulation?!
Captain obvious quote of the day
Don’t ever trust a man who pretends he is a woman.
Better title: “Mentally Ill Homosexual Transvestite Commits Murder”.
Strange. Not long ago some “trans man to woman” murdered his grandmother. Instead of referring it as a “woman” the news media reverted it to a “MAN” status even though it wanted to be a woman.
Why did they not do the same with this one?
The “gentle people” at it again.
A man killed someone.
Few women have a very obvious 5 o’clock shadow.
Yeesh, that pictures gives me the creeps.
